Synopsis – On the verge of turning 30 and reluctant to move on from her youth, Megan (Knightley) clings to her job as a sign-flipper for her father’s accounting company. Meanwhile, all her friends have evolved to the next phase of adulthood without her—marriage and children. When her high school boyfriend proposes, she accepts despite her conflicted feelings. She soon befriends a group of teenagers when they ask her to buy them booze. Eventually, when her fiancé encourages her to attend a professional development retreat, she forgoes it in favor of spending time with her new 16-year-old friend, Annika (Moretz), and her single dad.
